– Love, Peace, and Our Best Effort. –

Nagasaki has experienced profound suffering over its history.
The period extends from the era of persecution of secret Christians to the atomic bomb attack just before the end of World War II.
We owe the era of peace we have today to the suffering endured by so many people in the past.
Now that we can live peacefully, our club is responsible for communicating the importance of peace.
And we see it as our mission to expand that circle.
The core elements of the activity of praying for peace are “Love, Peace, and Our Best Effort.”
For our loved ones, we play football with enthusiasm, and we enthusiastically support football matches for our loved ones.
We would like to continue this activity with gratitude while enjoying these days of peace with our fellows,
without having to distinguish between enemy and ally.

As a club located in the atomic-bombed city of Nagasaki, V-Varen Nagasaki has been committed to contributing to a peaceful world through football since its founding. The year 2022 marks seventy-seven years since the atomic bombing, and soon, all living survivors will have passed away.
In the coming era, each and every one of us needs to instill the culture of peace in our daily lives by freely and readily incorporating the concept of peace into our thoughts and actions.
V-Varen Nagasaki invites you to move forward together with us by doing what we can right now.

Our Thoughts about Peace
The Name of the Club

The “V” stands for four Portuguese and Dutch words that have a long historical connection with Nagasaki.
“VITORIA (victory)”
“VREDE (peace)”
“VAREN (voyage)”
“VARIEDADE (diversity)”
As a sports club with its hometown in the last city to be bombed, V-VAREN NAGASAKI will continue to emphasize the importance of peace and respect for diversity, friend and foe alike, and pass on the preciousness of peace to the next generation through its play and community cooperation activities.

The Grand Slogan of the Club
The Grand Slogan of the Club
Fair Play!
~ From Nagasaki to the World ~

V-VAREN NAGASAKI’s grand slogan is:
”正 々 道 々 〜 ナ ガ サ キ か ら 、世界 へ 〜
It expresses the strength of the team to compete in a dignified manner and the peaceful spirit of Nagasaki.
It also expresses the club’s desire to send out a message of peace from Nagasaki to the world as a club located in Nagasaki, the last city to be atomic bombed, through fair play.

Peace Memorial Jersey

Around the 9th of August each year is an important time for Nagasaki citizens to consider peace. To convey this feeling, the club has been wearing a Peace Memorial Jersey during J.League games every summer since 2015(*).
(*) As for the 2020 season, there was a longer than expected suspension of the J.League due to COVID-19, so the club decided not to produce the Peace Memorial Jerseys and instead produced Peace Memorial T-shirts.

Concept behind the 2022 Peace Memorial Jersey

The design of the 2022 Peace Memorial Jersey features the motifs of paper cranes, which convey the desire for peace, the “V” of V-Varen Nagasaki, and blossoms of unzentsutsuji (Rhododendron serpyllifolium), the official flower of Nagasaki Prefecture. The incorporation of a plant into the design represents both the gentleness and the strength of nature.
This year marks seventy-seven years since the atomic bombing, and soon, all living survivors will have passed away.
The jersey is dotted with small representations of the aforementioned motifs to create a design that people can more easily wear in their daily lives, and we hope that this Peace Memorial Jersey will inspire a greater number of people to think more freely and readily about peace in their everyday lives.
Although the world is currently undergoing a period of instability, Nagasaki – as the target of an atomic bombing – has a compelling desire for peace and tranquility, and the club invites you to join us in sending out this message of peace.

Continuing from 2018, the “UNICEF” logo that used to be on the back of the season jersey is being displayed on the chest of the peace memorial jersey at no charge. This is part of the support project “PLAY (PRAY) for PEACE: What We Can Do Now For The Future” which was initiated by JAPANET HOLDINGS and Japan Association for UNICEF to support education and convey the idea of peace to children around the world.

Each year, citizens of Nagasaki City make candles by hand, on which they inscribe messages of peace. They then light these candles at an event called “Lights for Peace” held every year in the city. Together with fans and supporters, the club will create candles, inscribe messages of peace, and set them up for display.

The Nagasaki Kusunoki Project
Camphor Tree Project

This project is promoted by Nagasaki City. The club will aid in creating opportunities to think about peace, such as by introducing the stories of atomic-bombed camphor and other species of trees.
Many trees in Nagasaki appeared destroyed by the atomic bomb but started to grow again and only months after the attack, giving the citizens a sign of life and hope. To this day, they are a reminder of the power of nature, with two great camphor trees located at Sanno Shrine and estimated to be 400 or 500 years old, being great examples.

Citizens’ march to commemorate atomic bomb victims and pray for world peace
原爆犠牲者慰霊・世界平和祈念 市民大行進

This march is held each year in Nagasaki City to commemorate the victims of the atomic bombing and to appeal for lasting peace. Participants march from in front of the Peace Statue in Nagasaki Peace Park all the way to the hypocenter of the atomic blast. Vivi-kun, the club mascot, is scheduled to participate.

Working with High School Peace Ambassadors
